Parasite may have cleaned up at the Oscars this month, but plenty of movies, actors and actresses also shared the spotlight at this year's Academy Awards. Heavy favorite Joaquin Phoenix won for his role in Joker. Renée Zellweger won best actress for her portrayal of Judy Garland in Judy. Laura Dern won best supporting actress for Marriage Story, and Brad Pitt won best supporting actor for Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood.

Sam Mendes's World War I film 1917 missed for best picture but still won three awards for best cinematography, visual effects and sound mixing. Little Women won for best costume design, and Bombshell won for makeup and hairstyling. American Factory won for best documentary feature. Here's the complete list of Oscar winners, if you want to check out who received awards.

A few of the award-winning films are still in theaters -- including 1917, Little Women and Bombshell -- but the rest are available to watch from NetflixAmazon VideoApple's TV app (aka iTunes)VuduYouTube Movies and other services from the comfort of your couch.

What can I watch right now on Netflix?

Netflix's recent strategy of releasing high-profile movies in select theaters (thus making them eligible for awards) and then offering the same films on its service less than a month later may annoy traditionalists (and theater execs), but it means that two Oscar-winning flicks are ready for you to watch right now with a Netflix subscription -- along with another two nominated films. The Irishman and The Two Popes went home empty-handed last night, but Marriage Story and the documentary American Factory each took home a statue.

How to watch the Oscar winners

Of course, the streaming world goes beyond Netflix. Here's where you can find all of the major Oscar-winning movies online now.
